Love Life was supposed to be one of a few of shows to launch HBO Max, but then you know what happened, throwing production plans into disarray. Nonetheless, while speaking with us, executive producer Paul Feig had reason to celebrate the show’s solo-act success, and Season 2 is finally coming after other HBO Max productions followed Love Life’s lead. The love department didn’t treat Anna Kendrick’s Darby well last season (girlfriend has a lousy picker, which happens), but a new teaser suggests that things appear to have worked out for her.
Maybe? Darby got married, and she’s downing a shot, so read into that what you will. However, Darby departs the frame, and a new show lead immediately walks into view.
Enter Marcus Watkins, portrayed by William Jackson Harper (and his Jacked Chidi arms), who’s hitting the bar in this teaser. According to the season synopsis, Marcus has emerged from a long-term relationship with the lady who he believed “was going to be his person.” Yeah, Marcus needs to take a break, right? Well, a break doesn’t always make for interesting TV, so it sounds like Marcus is going to find a whole lot of drama after being “plunged back into the search for the romantic fulfillment that he thought he had already found.”
It’s unclear whether Anna Kendrick will continue to feature in the series, but she has signed on to executive produce with Harper and Feig. Season 2 will premiere three episodes on October 28, followed by three more on November 4 and four more on November 11. Let’s hope Darby didn’t end up with an a-hole of a husband, and the same can be said for Marcus as he continues his hunt for love.
